It's a small town filled with great people. Southern hospitality is a major occurrence here. The high school is newly remodeled, and there are several places for people to enjoy their day in town.

It's quiet most of the time, I'd most likely choose to live here again because I know mostly everyone. Most people are nice, with some exceptions.
